Re: August 2010 - December chat

About a week late, but how was Thanksgiving (for those of us in the US)?

We had an hour & a half drive each way and thankfully both girls slept the entire time. Usually Heather HATES being in her carseat.

And I think I've gone crazy because I'm really wanting another baby.

Here's a link to the thread about them: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...d.php?t=787684

but I got mine from http://gynosaur.com/bf_ribbons.php

basically it's just how long you've nursed for, I have 2yrs for Holly and 3mos for Heather.

Kayla- You are not crazy, I am suddenly wanting another baby, as well. I was so sure I was done, too! But, now that Elias has nearly outgrown his fussiness, I am more relaxed and enjoying having a little one. I am trying to convince myself to wait, though. I think it would be more practical to wait until DD2 is in Kindergarten, that way I would only have 3 LOs at home during the day. Not to mention, I'm pretty sure #5 would be our last and I would like to have a homebirth, so I need to give my body some rest so that I don't risk having another preemie!
I am trying to convince myself to wait, too. I know it'd be best to wait until Heather is at least a year & half, preferably two years old, but a small part of me would be so thrilled to get pregnant again before then. I do need to give my body rest, too, though, after hemorrhaging and birthing such a big baby.. I still have not regained full bladder control but it's [slowly] getting better.

Re: August 2010 - December chat

I feel the same! I keep thinking about another one. Going from 1 to 2 was H.A.R.D. for me but I have heard it's not so bad to go to 3! I keep doing the math in my head.. if we get pregnant now, Graham will be... and so on for each month or season.

Graham's been a bit fussy. He's now only pooping once every 5 days which I read was ok for bf babies but man does his gas and bm STINK when he does go. It's not the normal bf poo smell. Is that normal?? He also gets pretty fussy around day 4 or 5. I'm not sure if it's something I'm eating? He spits up but nothing major, again what I'm eating? And how do I know what it is? I have a friend who knew green pepper did it for her son. What should I give up first to try? I do eat a lot of sweets (NEED TO LOSE this weight but...!)

Re: August 2010 - December chat

Hi, everyone!

DH and I are probably going to give this baby thing another go-round. We have three frozen embryos left at the fertility clinic. If they don't result in a pregnancy, then we're done. I'm happy with just Aeryn at this point but I feel responsible for the other three frosties in cryostorage as well. It's kind of weird to actually think about the next baby. Last time around (back in '94) I got pregnant when DS was only about 6 months old, but I sure as heck wasn't thinking about it! I don't know when I'll be able to try again. With my other kids, AF returned right away. With Aeryn, it hasn't. I don't know whether it will come back before I wean or not. Time will tell, I guess.
